Luzerne County government is attempting to sell 17 unused vehicles Wednesday in a silent auction.

According to auction documents:

Starting bids are set at the estimated fair market values, and all but one range from $300 to $900.

The exception is a 1999 blue Dodge 3500 pickup that has 10,422 miles and a minimum bid of $5,500.

The sale will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the county record storage facility, 85 Young St., Hanover Township. The building is located across from the county 911 center.

To place a bid, prospective buyers must write the opening amount they are offering on a sheet along with incremental bid submissions, the county said.

Full payment must be presented the day of the auction through check or money order issued to Luzerne County. Credit card payments won’t be accepted, and all sales are final.
